Asia Society cordially invites you to an emergency town hall meeting
Pakistan in Crisis:
What Next After the Bhutto Assassination?
- Hasan-Askari Rizvi, 2007-08 Annual Pakistan Studies Scholar, The Johns Hopkins University (via teleconference from Pakistan)
- Barnett R. Rubin, Director of Studies and Senior Fellow, Center on International Cooperation, New York University
- Kiran Khalid, Freelance Broadcast Journalist and documentary filmmaker of "We Are Not Free" about media censorship in Pakistan (moderator)
The assassination of former Prime Minister and then leading prime ministerial candidate Benazir Bhutto, just days before the planned parliamentary elections,
(now postponed), has brought Pakistan into even deeper crisis. This caps one of the most turbulent years in Pakistan’s history with waves of violence, suicide attacks, assassination attempts on politicians, unprecedented public protests, constitutional crises, and the resurgence of pro-Taliban forces plaguing the country. This emergency town hall meeting will explore the national, regional, and global implications of the Bhutto assassination.
Please join us at Asia Society’s New York Headquarters or online via live Webcast, to discuss these and other pertinent issues. Internet listeners will be able to ask questions and offer comments via email during the webcast. Please send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
